"review from blog "mysanantonio.com"
"The star of the evening was clearly guest artist Antonio Arrebola, a tall, strong, masculine dancer from Spain who recently relocated to New York City.The sheer power and physicality of his performance were enough to make him stand out." "He alternated sharp, resolute movements of arms and body with intricate and immensely varied percussive footwork, adding flourishes of knee and foot, as well as kicks, jumps and almost balletic turns, all the while taking total possession of the space."
